Windows 7: Block sender list does not work

Block sender list does not work

When I add an Email sender's address to the blocked senders list in Live Mail 2011, I continue to receive incoming Emails from that address. Is there a fix?

are you blocking a person or company? Company can/does change their ip's when blasting emails.

I know this is probably redundant but:

Block a Sender in Windows Live Mail


To add a sender to your list of blocked senders in Windows Live Mail or Windows Mail:
  • Highlight a message from the undesired sender in the message list.
  • Make sure the Home ribbon is active.
  • Click the down arrow beneath Junk in the Home ribbon.
  • Select Add sender to blocked sender list from the menu.
    • Select Add sender's domain to blocked sender list from the menu to block messages not only from this sender but from all addresses at the same domain (what follows the '@' sign).

That's the problem. I've tried your directionsnumerous times, but those blocked Email addresses keep reappearing for days.

Very strange... Have you been able to successfully 'block' ANY addresses?

IIRC, it's a bug in WLM 2011 that you have to do a "repair" to fix this problem. Use "Control Panel>>Programs and Features" to do a repair of "Windows Live Essentials".

Could you possibly provide a little more detail/explanation as to "how to do this repair"? I went to the "Control Panel" then "Programs and Features" but I do not see anything for a repair of "Windows Live Essentials".

Thanks
